Now, this is the second pair of these. I worn out my first ones and will probably do the same for the second pair. I will keep ordering them as long as they are available. I wear them all the time rain or shine!

These are really comfortable. The footbed feels a little extra-bumpy when you first put them on. However, I trekked all over Disney World for a week in these and my feet were happy the whole day. It takes a while to get used to the straps. They truly are completely adjustable, but it takes some time to get the shoe fitted to your foot.

These sandals are great! Very solid and supportive but still look nice. The only downfall is that the toe straps seem to tighten as I wear them and tend to choke my big toe. I have to tug on the straps occasionally to loosen them.

I got these for the Bonnaroo Music Festival this summer, and they worked out great! They didn't really need to be broken in, were super comfortable and didn't chafe my feet. The only downside was that they ran a little small, and my heel was right at the edge - probably could have gone a half size larger.

Love these shoes! I usually wear between a size 7 1/2 and an 8. I had tried these on in a store and decided to go with a size 7 because the strap around the back of the shoe was too loose on the 8. They fit perfect and are extremely comfortable.

These shoes are great! I especially love the arch support. It took me a while to get the straps adjusted just right, but once they are adjusted, they fit my feet perfectly. True to size.

These shoes were recommended by a friend. I have had foot pain since I was pregnant 2 years ago and had to stop wearing flip-flops (even my Tevas!) and any shoe without really good arch support. I've been wearing running shoes or Danskos with added inserts for extra support. My friend finally convinced me I could still wear sandals - and she was right! I have finally found the perfect sandal. It took a little while to adjust the straps to fit just right, but I don't want to take them off! My feet are happy. The arch support is perfect and I can walk for miles without complaint! I would definitely recommend these - definitely worth the price! After reading the reviews I opted for a size 8 (normally I wear an 8.5-9) and the arch falls in just the right spot for my foot. I love these!

I have Chaco flip flops and love them! I wanted a pair of their sandals with a heel strap. It pains me to return these. I bought these in addition to the single-strap. These are very difficult to tighten and loosen...much more so than the single strap. They were very comfortable and had great arch support, but I couldn't break out in to a sweat every time I put them on or took them off so, sadly, they are going back.

Took the advice of others and sized down (I usually wear a 9.5 and bought a 9, which fit great). Adjusting the straps to fit your feet at first is a pain, but they did fit great. The toe hole does get tighter throughout the course of the day, but my friend said you can send them to Chaco and they will fit the sandals with a piece to prevent that (it's not so bothersome though, I doubt I will). I wore them for 5 straight days at Bonnarroo with only minimal soreness from a spot that rubbed by the plastic strap connector at the inner foot, but considering how much walking/dancing I did, I'd call that a success.

Easily adjustable. I have very narrow feet and was able to get them tight enough, but then I cut the extra strap off and sealed it by lighting a match and letting it singe the ends to prevent it from unraveling.

These are pretty great sandals overall. If you have narrower feet, they will be great. I love the adjustability of the straps. I love the arch support. I love the way they look. I do not love the width. Toe box is fine, but the bottom two thirds of the sandal are just very narrow. The side of my foot hangs over a bit and the heel stabilizers dig painfully into my feet. (And I was sized originally in a store but when they didn't have the style that I was looking for I ordered online. The size up from this one was definitely too big.) I suspect that a big part of the problem is the lack of half sizes. Too bad. I love almost everything about these sandals, but the fact that their "wide" sandal isn't wide is a serious problem.

The smaller sizes might not be scaled down too well. I'm usually a 6.5wide. I bought 6 Wide in the ZX/2 Yampa and Unaweep. I had the same fit problems with both. The arch in the footbed is in the wrong place for me, and is WAY too long. I don't get it. These sandals seem to be the same size as the Tevas I wear all the time, but these don't fit. And the heel strap is just ridiculously big, too far back, AND its also the ONLY part of the sandal that can't be adjusted. Weird, right?

I was so excited to get my new Chacos in black. When I tried them on, it became apparent that my slightly wide size 9 feet would be swallowed up by a 9W. They were too long in the front, too spacy in the back, and was not attractive. I really like the double strap system, but it was frustrating to adjust (not that much of a problem) and it positively constricted my big toes within five minutes of walking in them. I tried to give them a chance, but they just kept happening over and over. Also, the straps practically drug on the floor. The arch support was also very uncomfortable. These are really cute sandals, but I had to return them. The one strap system seems to be better about choking your big toe.

Thought these ran narrow...bottom of foot kept "stepping on" where the straps came out of foot bed. Arch was good. Straps just too much work for me. Going back to Teva.

I bought mine 2 years ago and just am getting to consistently wear them. They get more comfortable with time. However, the straps, which are almost too tight to adjust seem to tighten as the day goes on, squeezing my large toe. Once I adjust them again and have them just right, I put them on the next morning only to find a gremlin has tightened them again. I am forever loosening them and it is frustrating. Unless this has improved over the last 2 years I would not recommend these for the price.

Last summer I ordered three styles of the Chaco sandals and had to return all. There wasn't enough strap around the ankle, and the straps that went over the little toes on the Chaco Yampa were very tight, as were the straps around large toes. My normal size turned out to be very big so go down one size when ordering. Very disappointing as the foot bed was very comfortable and they looked great. If Chaco gave a bit more strap in these sandals I'd be buying them.
